Hi all,

While up at the big mall today (marking student papers in the library), I had lunch on the grass out the back overlooking the flood control ponds.

Saw the usual suspects, but added a new one to the list -- an azure kingfisher flew under the footbridge over the pond, where normally only welcome swallows live. It flew under there a couple times -- perhaps has a nest hole there? had a couple good views of it, and saw plenty of diving into the water.

Also saw white faced heron and Australasian grebes, plus eastern rosellas in the bush bush nearby. Missing were the usual swallows and pacific blacks.

I haven't paid much attention to this spot, but as a bushy and well-set up pond in the midst of suburbia, it may be worth the occasional check.
